Greg Zeschuk Hasn’t Quit BioWare, Clarifies Decision to Drop His Role

August 11, 2012 Written by Zak Islam

BioWare co-founder Greg Zeschuk has clarified recent rumors that he has quit the EA-owned firm.

He had stepped down from his role as general manager of Star Wars: The Old Republic developer BioWare Austin, with the reigns being handed over to ex-Major League Gaming CEO Matthew Bromberg. The change, however, has resulted in a broader role for Zeschuk, who told Gamasutra that he’ll “be able to spend more time on a wider range of BioWare games rather than focusing on just one as I did with SWTOR.”

With regard to BioWare Austin, I handed off the leadership of the studio to Matthew Bromberg quite some time ago (back in May). Ray [Muzyka, BioWare co-founder] and I picked Matthew to take over and he’s been doing a great job with the studio.

My time in Austin was always planned to have a finite endpoint (my family was still living in Edmonton throughout my time in Austin) and now that I’ve handed the baton to Matt, I will be able to spend more time on a wider range of BioWare games rather than focusing on just one as I did with SWTOR.

BioWare is currently working on Mass Effect 3: Leviathan, which is “extremely focused” on both story and exploration.
